Placitas Community Center News

óMary Lou Arriola

With school coming to an end and summer approaching, parents are wondering how to keep our kids busy. Here at the Placitas Community Center, Diane Sego will hold storytelling every Wednesday from 3:30 to 4:30 throughout the summer until school begins again. Karate classes will be offered every Monday starting June 3 from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. for students five years old and up. The cost will be $35.00 per month. The class, taught by Martial Arts for Education, instructs children in self-defense and how to avoid danger and violence through the art of the Ninja. If you are interested in these classes, please call the center, 867-1396, to register. The classes will be on a first come, first serve basis.

Mark June 18, 12:30 p.m. on your calendars to remind you of a meeting where you will find out more about osteoporosis. You may also receive a certificate for a free screening that will be scheduled for those interested.

Happy Fatherís Day! We invite all fathers and their families to our Fatherís Day luncheon on June 13 at 12:00 noon. Every father will be taking home a gift made by the centerís special ladies and may be the lucky winner of one of the special centerpieces.

On June 21, the center will host a horseshoe tournament, open to all, at 9:00 a.m. There will be a $2 charge per entry. Please call 867-1396 to indicate your interest in attending.
